This is a chinese restaurant which i had dinner with my family this weekend! I love the food here because the servings are not big for the three of us who are not big eaters! The dishes here are basically in the healthy range, less oily as compared to other restaurants when you actually don’t personally request for less oil to be used. Their famous food is the xiao long bao, which is steamed pork meat and pork soup wrapped in a thinly handmade skin.
There are eight first-of-its-kind types of xiao long bao which includes original, ginseng, foie gras, black truffles, crab roe, cheese, garlic and Szechuan. Included in its menu are 18 types of silky handmade La Mian freshly made. The affordable range of Shanghainese dim sum, hot and cold appetisers and a variety of fried meat, seafood, vegetable and rice dishes are also on their menu.
While waiting for queue number to be called, one can see the busy chefs at work, make the xiao long bao(s) in this transparent kitchen window.
I particularly love these seats just outside the kitchen as it makes one feel like you are sitting on a swing, except that this is not a playground!
The usual cutlery used in a chinese restaurant, of course, fork and spoons as well as toddler cutlery are provided upon request.
Warm homemade water chestnut and barley drinks – not too sweet, i gave it a thumbs up 🙂
‘La Mian’ with black fungus, cabbage and fried egg. We asked for less oil for this dish. The shredded black fungus and cabbage gave an overall crunchy feel which the egg brings out the freshness in the dish!
Crispy spring roll with chopped cabbage, carrots and mushrooms, not oily at all! My mum’s favourite 🙂
Crispy sweet and sour pork – a dish which many families love to order. The pork is fried to crispy-ness and then added with the sweet and sour sauce and stir fry together with green and red bell peppers, pineapples and onions. This is the first time we had this dish and i would give it a ‘great’ cos I don’t bite into any fats in the crispy pork – so it’s sure healthy in its own way!
Sauteed french beans with minced meat – one of the dishes which is sure to be ordered for our meals. The minced meat brings out the freshness and crunchy-ness of the french beans, not oily as well 🙂
This is my personal favourite dish from the restaurant: Braised tofu with sliced pork and mushrooms. It is slightly spicy, and i love everything that is in the dish – 4 different types of mushrooms with pre-fried tofu and stir fry with the braised sauce. It is so yummylicious that i can eat this dish on its own!
